While San Diego Comic-Con registration may be going later and later — WonderCon registration keeps getting earlier, as Comic-Con International has unveiled a bit of a holiday treat for fans today. WonderCon Anaheim 2017 badges are now on sale!
Prices for the March 31-April 2 convention, which is moving back to Anaheim, are actually flat to 2016(!), with a three-day badge for 2017 running $65, a Friday or Saturday badge clock in at $30 each, and a Sunday-only badge comes in at $18. These are some of the best value badges around, and we’re honestly a bit surprised they didn’t see the traditional price hike.
Just like with last year, badges will be available online only. The convention has sold out the past few years, though nowhere near the speed of San Diego Comic-Con.
Similar to Comic-Con, you’ll need a Member ID to buy a badge, but unlike with SDCC, you can set up an ID today and still complete your purchase. And, new this year, WonderCon badges purchased prior to February 27 will be mailed (though just like with SDCC, international attendees will still pick up on-site). Those who purchase after February 27 will also pick up on-site.
Stay tuned for more updates about hotels.
Although WonderCon is smaller than Comic-Con, it still sees some amazing programming. Last year’s headliners included Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, Justice League vs. Young Justice, Lights Out, Shadowhunters, iZombie, Preacher, Scorpion, Orphan Black, and more. The full line-up for this year’s convention won’t be released until closer to the convention date in March.
